I'm not sure, I will say that they are on par with Borrelli/Brioni that I have.

I don't know either, but they are among the best ties I own.

Franco Bassi; Amazing ties...

I really think they are better than Brioni ties.

Italo Ferretti reportedly makes Brioni ties, though I read on the forum that Brioni has a new maker for the current season.

On their site does "clients" mean stores that they make ties for (private label) or sell ties to. I ask because I have a real well made Bergdorf tie and they are listed as a client of Bassi, along with Paul Stuart and Barneys.
